Do You Have An Emergency Financial Need?

Roseb441702 started this conversation

for all of those who are looking for financial assistance to help with an emergency financial should know that there are organizations out there that can help you.....

Do You Have An Emergency Financial Need?

Are you facing a financial emergency?

There is one organization that has helped more than 80 individuals/families in need of financial assistance. In 2009 one of the organization's funding programs - which provide emergency funding assistance has given out nearly 300 percent more in assistance than it did in all of 2008.

The purpose of this grant program is to help individuals and families who have chronic financial challenges.

People who qualify for assistance from this fund include those who have lost their jobs, have been out of work for months and months and have exhausted all their savings and resources. According to a spokesperson, "If they fit the criteria, they are able to access this fund for months at a time.”

This grant program was created as a way to help people who don’t qualify for one of the organization's other grant programs.

This funding program has been around for the last 20 years!

The grant program only makes one-time, emergency disbursements. Last year, 32 individuals or families received financial assistance through this funding program. So far over 75 individuals and/or families have received $75,000 in 2009!

This funding program is good for people who tend to struggle with something every year.

Since some of these funding programs are both relatively new, not many people know about them!

What's more the organization itself receives grant money itself to help fund their own grant programs!

One of the organizations funding programs is intended to help with large, one-time emergencies. It was established in a few years ago through the generosity of an anonymous donor. Grants have helped a couple with funeral expenses. Another time it helped a man repair his home after a fire. He had let his home owner’s insurance lapse.

The first step in obtaining assistance is leaving a message on the organization's helpline. The message will usually be returned by a caseworker within 24 hours. A spokesperson for the funding program said the initial phone call between the organization and the applicant takes between five and 10 minutes. Once the exact problem has been determined, the applicant is matched with a social worker, who meets with the client to make a fuller assessment of the situation. Thereafter, the social worker presents the case to the case-management team to decide whether the applicant qualifies for funds. Each application is evaluated on an individual basis. There are clear guidelines, but no set formula to receive assistance.

“If somebody needs financial assistance then we make sure they are taking advantage of other government programs. We have a whole checklist of programs to make sure that they are taking advantage of all the things they can” says the program's spokesperson. Applicants who need emergency funds may also qualify for other programs that the organization has to offer.

It is recommended that applicants apply as early as possible because the number of people seeking assistance has increased so much over the past year and because of that it can now take several weeks to actually receive assistance.

In 2008, 40 people, on average, called the organization for assistance each month. Last year more than 200 people called for help. While not all of these phone calls are for emergency needs, this shows that there has been a marked increase in the need for all of our services, includingemergency financial assistanceemergency assistance.

According to the program's spokesperson, “If somebody comes to us and says ‘I’m being evicted tomorrow it’s very hard to help. If someone comes in and says ‘I’m being evicted in three weeks,’ we can help”.

That's a really old article, 2010, not sure why they don't remove it among others that are out of date and provide no help.

Why would some post an article like this and not give any names of the grant programs? What is the name of the program(s)?

To the kind public:

May i know where we can seek financial assistance for our daughters medical operation?

Our daughter YSABELLE ROHAN, who is 1yr and 2months old is in need of IMMEDIATE MEDICAL OPERATION. After undergoing MRCP test, it was determined that our Ysabelle, was diagnosed to have “Cystic nodules in the right lobe of the liver posterior to the gall bladder with thick fluid seen within cystic nodule, the largest of which is measuring 5.5cm x 4.2cm. findings highly suggestive of Choledochal Cysts Type 4, and nuclear scintigraphy. Pediatric Surgeon recommends immediate surgery to remove the said cyst that blocks her bile duct passage.” We were also told that further delay in surgery will cause irreversible damage to her liver.

After a series of consultations with hospitals and surgeons, we were informed that the cost for this type of procedure /surgery may cost as much as Php.450,000pesos – Despite all our efforts and the assistance from family and friends we are still unable to raise the needed amount for our daughters surgery. At present, we are already having difficulty providing her with her prescribed medications, and the high cost for the series of test (MRCP, Ultra-Sound, Blood Chem, Hepa Test etc. has already taken a huge toll on us.

We knock on your hearts to please help us raise funds needed for our daughter’s medical operation. As we continue to hope and pray for a miracle for our little angel Ysabelle, we appeal for you to join us to raise funds for her immediate surgery, and may you also lift us up in your prayers.

Should you need or require any supporting documents such as; Medical Test Results, Name of attending Pedia-Surgeon, Physician and Hospital – kindly email me at: will be more than glad to send all pertinent documents upon your request.

Once Again, Thank you and may God Bless you and your Family,

Hello my name is Kristopher Kinder and I live in Mitchell Indiana and before I turned 18 this year during the spring I got hit by a drunk driver and it was a hit and run. They said that he could not be convicted since they can't prove that he was the driver that hit me because the car wasn't in his name and the plates were on the wrong car. Right now I am still a senior in Mitchell High school that lives with my mom and currently not employed. We do not have a car and live with my moms friend and use her car and i hate to use the car like that and i need help please i need to find a vehicle or to come up with the money. I am getting ready to graduate and become a Homeland Security FAQ at VU Indiana and i have to have transportation of my own so please some one help me... I hope you can help me and if you can god bless you.
